An air ambulance is a private aeroplane
When a medical emergency happens in a foreign country, repatriation by air ambulance is often the most direct and convenient way of returning you or a loved one home for vital treatment. It’s also extremely fast – we sometimes organise flights within hours of the first phone call.
In essence, an air ambulance is a private aeroplane or helicopter that has been specially modified to enable emergency medical care for a patient while in transit. EMS 24-7 uses a network of high quality private aircraft across the world, each of which has been carefully designed to allow for minute-by-minute treatment over short, medium or even long-distance flights. Each plane or helicopter comes fully supplied with state-of-the-art equipment and medicines. A team of qualified experts travels with the patient to provide emergency care during the flight.
